RHEMA 1/15/08 GROWING UP INTO CLARITY
HEARD: Butterfly kisses. From what we knew
to where we are going. Strongholds forgotten.
Song lyrics by Bob Carlisle
There's two things I know for sure:
She was sent here from heaven and she's daddy's little
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night
She talks to Jesus and I close my eyes and
I thank God for all the joy in my life
Oh, but most of all
For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer;
sticking little white flowers all up in her hair;
"Walk beside the pony, Daddy, it's my
"I know the cake looks funny, Daddy, but I sure tried."
In all that I've done wrong I know I must
have done something right to deserve a hug
every morning and butterfly kisses at night.
Sweet 16 today
She's looking like her mama a little more everyday
One part woman, the other part girl.
To perfume and make-up from ribbons and curls
Trying her wings out in a great big world.
But I remember
Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer;
Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair.
"You know how much I love you, Daddy, But if you
don't mind I'm only gonna kiss you on the cheek this
With all that I've done wrong I must have done
something right to deserve her love every morning
and butterfly kisses at night.
All the precious time
Like the wind, the years go by.
Spread your wings and fly.
She'll change her name today.
She'll make a promise and I'll give her away.
Standing in the bride-room just staring at her.
She asked me what I'm thinking and I said "I'm not
sure-I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl."
She leaned over...gave me butterfly kisses with her mama
Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair
"Walk my down the aisle, Daddy-it's just about time."
"Does my wedding gown look pretty, Daddy? Daddy, don't
Oh, with all that I've done wrong I must have
done something right.
To deserve your love every morning and butterfly
kisses-I couldn't ask God for more, man this is what
I know I gotta let her go, but I'll always remember
every hug in the morning and butterfly kisses.
HEARD: They never understood the depths of
what I said. It’s Me precious, it always has been My
Words to you. Alignment in synch. The Words, they were
You see clearly now the way it was before. Felled a
tree. I’m ending this, setting you free. So that you
will know you are aligned right. Therapy. Let’s see
how it is ordered properly. How do we do that? Themes.
Your prayers for clarity are pouring through. You want
to know. I have the color, you have the riddle. You
are free. Helping you find your bearings. And using
what I give you.
WORD TO PONDER 1/15/08 GROWING UP INTO CLARITY
Precious one, I have been speaking to you for many years
and lovingly watched you grow under many tutors. I
could only speak to you in the language that you could
hear, which was stories and parables and not with the
face to face clarity you desired. You did not
understand the depths or the perspective of My Words,
and how vastly they were to be applied and this caused
you to be sifted at times. But I have lovingly adored
each step of your growing process while preparing you
for marriage with My Son.
Walk away from the strongholds of misunderstanding. I
have heard your deepest longings to be understood and to
understand. I am setting your perspectives free to see
on a deeper level what has been before you all along.
Be keen to listen for themes as I send them to you, and
listen to My Spirit quicken what I have told you before,
and I will give your order and alignment to understand
very clearly what I have been speaking into your life.
Prov 1:5-7 NKJV
A wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of
understanding will attain wise counsel, to understand a
proverb and an enigma, the words of the wise and their
riddles . The fear of the LORD is the beginning of
But fools despise wisdom and instruction.
WORDS TO PONDERS ABOUT HINDSIGHT
make the rhema a clear path 6/25/95
You are learning to listen to Me and to lean into Me
with all your weight. This is creating humility and
submission. There will come a day when My Words to you
will become very clear and evident as you read them with
hindsight. In that day, you shall have your sight and
understanding. This has been leadership training
because a leader learns by following, and you have
learned by following Me..
“His disciples came and asked him, "Why do you always
tell stories when you talk to the people?" Then he
explained to them, "You have been permitted to
understand the secrets of the Kingdom of Heaven, but
others have not.” (Matt 13:10-11 NLT)
I have been speaking to you but you have only understood
a small amount. Don’t worry, you shall understand in
hindsight. A time will come when I will ask you to do
your homework and harvest My Words to you. Then you
shall be stunned at what you see and understand. I will
encourage you and reconstitute the seemingly dead words
and bring them back to life once again.
There is coming a day when My anointing and glory will
be released through your hands. You shall touch many
lives as you go forth and travel. The youth will be
restored and renewed as you loose healing upon their
“Consider how I love thy precepts quicken me, O LORD,
according to thy lovingkindness. 160 Thy word is true
from the beginning and every one of thy righteous
judgments endureth for ever.” (Ps 119:159-160 KJV)
THE STORM AND REBUILDING FAITH THROUGH RHEMA HINDSIGHT
You see 2 columns lining up, one of rain and the other
of circling rhema. And all the while you circle, you
climb higher in and through the storm. I know that you
have suffered greatly in being that bridge, whereby
others can safely pass over rough waters ahead. And
this has caused pain in your walk in Me, pain in your
level of peace and rest in Me. Allow Me to delete your
storm, and rebuild your areas of burn out. I want to
graft you into My voice, through your reading rhema in
hindsight, and let it rebuild your faith. For you will
discover that I have told you the truth all along, and
you have not missed one Word that I have spoken. I want
to endorse your hearing My voice.
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they
follow me28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they
shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out
of my hand.” (John 10:27-28 KJV)
PRAY FOR INTERPRETATION 3/15/03
When I give you My Words through the many ways I speak,
begin to ask Me for the interpretation. This prepares
your heart to be open when I impart My answers. It also
teaches you how to lean upon Me for understanding, which
in turn, also resists independence. As you grow in our
vocabulary and riddle connections, My Words are going to
increase in your life. These will be foundations upon
which to build. Therefore, it is important to begin to
solidify interpretations as We launch you forward into
new places. I will be repeating things I have told you
in your past and bringing these Words to harvest. I will
shine My light of revelation upon My Words and help you
see them from My point of view, because now you will be
able to see them through hindsight.
“For God may speak in one way, or in another, yet man
does not perceive it.” (Job 33:14 NKJV)
